Pancreatitis Care

The Pancreatitis Program at Columbia provides full-service care for those diagnosed with acute and chronic pancreatitis. From diet and nutritional support to avoid ongoing attacks to medical management to surgical interventions, the Pancreatitis Program offers a balance of all available options to treating pancreatitis and its side effects. We are one of the few programs in the country--and the only program in the New York metropolitan area--to offer autologous islet cell transplantation to prevent diabetes in people with chronic pancreatitis.

Stories of Hope: Ryan Finlay

Ryan is a tough guy—a combat veteran and an NYPD cop. Once, on active duty, he had to have neck surgery without anesthesia. But, he says, that pain paled compared to his pancreatitis.

Stories of Hope: Bob Tepé

Life can be snatched from you in an instant. A more diabolical way is to be told by your doctor that you have cancer. Is it just as much a life-crushing moment if you had an idea something was wrong and your doctor’s confirmation somehow gave it bonafide legitimacy?

Research & Clinical Trials

The Pancreas Center brings together a host of physicians and scientists to explore the various reasons why people develop pancreatic disease and how we can best treat it. Please explore our Clinical Trials for a comprehensive list of recent studies.

To further encourage breakthroughs in pancreas care, we fund awards and host conferences dedicated to research into pancreatic disease, like the Ruth Grant Siegel Award for Excellence in Pancreatic Research and the Gigi Shaw Arledge Conference on Pancreatic Disease, an opportunity for doctors and scientists from around the world to meet and share their research and knowledge.

Information for Students & Healthcare Professionals

As part of an Ivy League academic center, our team has a duty to teach doctors-in-training and share their knowledge with the medical community at large - pushing them to always be aware of the latest findings and best practices.
